Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion Preview

Sunday’s Premier League action concludes at Old Trafford where second place Manchester United take on bottom-of-the-table West Bromwich Albion.

Jose Mourinho’s men came from two goals down at half time in the Manchester derby last weekend to run out 3-2 winners – both putting their neighbors celebrations on hold and leaving them in pole position in the race to be runners up.

That victory was their fifth in succession and two more triumphs will confirm their place next season’s Champions League.

Top scorer Romelu Lukaku has overcome a sick bug and could feature while Daley Blind and Phil Jones are also available though Sergio Romero remains out.

Lukaku is favourite to open the scoring at 3.75 (11/4) with most firms ahead of Alexis Sanchez, who is a 5.5 (9/2) chance with Betfred.

The home win is widely available at 1.20 (1/5) with the visitors as highly priced as the 19.0 (18/1) on offer from some bookmakers. The draw is widely available at 7.5 (13/2).

The Baggies ended their run of eight league defeats with a 1-1 draw with Swansea City at the Hawthorns last time out in caretaker manager Darren Moore’s first game in charge.

However, defeat here would all but confirm their relegation as they would be twelve points from safety with just four games to play and with a goal difference far inferior to all but one of the other sides in trouble.

Former United defender Jonny Evans is a doubt for the visitors with a knee injury though Nacer Chadli, Sam Field and Danny Sturridge could return.

Salomon Rondon is 17.0 (16/1) to get the first goal of the game, with Jay Rodriguez a 20.0 (19/1) shot with Unibet.

The Red Devils won the reverse fixture at the Hawthorns by two goals to one back in December thanks to goals from Lukaku and Jesse Lingard while last season’s corresponding match ended goalless.

That game just before Christmas was the first time in five meetings where there has been over 2.5 goals, and you can back fewer than three goals this time around at 2.35 (23/17) with Unibet.
